Kitela Lodge rises up on the hillside of a valley with beautiful views of a coffee plantation and a waterfall within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area's incredible highlands. It consists of 20 colonial style cottages surrounded by beautiful gardens, a coffee plantation and a working farm.
The area around the lodge is multiplying, and a few less-than-attractive developments have sprung up recently. Don't let it put you off. However - none of them can be seen from the lodge, and the area is still beautiful.

Kitela's communal facilities are well-appointed, with dining and lounge areas built with a raised deck to maximise the views. The decor is stylish and comfortable, with a splash of colour and plenty of fireplaces to warm your body and soul. Relaxation is always in the form of dinner with a view or a quiet spot to read a book. The heated pool area further enhances the incredible valley's scenery from the comfort of a reclining deck chair.
There are twenty large thatched suites, each with a luxurious bathroom and panoramic views. The suites’ even distribution on the landscaped gardens enhances the sense of space and privacy, while the personal decks allow guests to relax both in and outdoors. The rooms have large comfy beds with mosquito netting, soft inviting chairs and coffee tables—the perfect place for a little privacy after a long day of exploration.
The rooms are comfortable, and the location is convenient, but the best thing Kitela has to offer is its eye-catching brilliant view.
